Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
About 70GW have been built in 2002-2007. If you exclude the 15GW built in China and India, about 55GW have been built in the OECD, and my bank has participated to roughly 15-20% of that, leading the way, ie negotiating and putting in place the financing in half of that.

Now, because of the financial crisis, which has nothing to do with wind power (I don't think a wind farm as such has caused any bank to lose any money yet), lending capacity is drying and seriously handicapping projects - including for the projects I'm working on.

Irresponsible bankers and financiers are a truly evil breed.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
